SUBTITLE: How to Connect and Allow the Spirit to Dominate My Body

TEXT...."Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world." 1 John 4:4 (KJV)

THOUGHT: Will you ever hear negative thoughts coming from the Soul and the Spirit of God?

ILLUSTRATION: Man is made up of 3 parts.....The Spirit, Soul, and Body.... We are a spirit, we have a soul and we live in a body. 

Point #1- Spirit, Soul and Body

*Your soul may feel like you're not saved, but your spirit is divinely connected to the Spirit of God and says otherwise by confirming your salvation.  The word soul derives from the Greek word psyche, psycho, psychology; which is the study of the mind.

*When you read God's Word, meditate on God's Word, and pray God's Word, you allow the Spirit of God (Holy Spirit) to connect with your spirit and dominate your body.

*What dead weight will you leave behind in 2013?
*What positive thing will you bring to life in 2014?

Take Aways:
- Be a role model
- Pray, meditate and read the Word more
- Know the people that you surround yourself with
- Sow more into the lives of others

Conclusion: Your body may feel that you are not saved, but remember you are divinely protected.

Pastor's comments:

Pastor Faith:  We must crucify the flesh so that we can take control of our bodies, because our bodies are nothing but a manifestation of our spirits.

Pastor Steve: We can become off balance if we don't pray and meditate; so, we must keep ourselves built up.
